The Dudley Square Complete Streets Design Project is a BTD led initiative and community planning process that will develop roadway, intersection and streetscape design plans for construction in Dudley Square. The initiative aims to modernize existing conditions and bolster the ongoing municipal and private investment projects in Dudley Square including the Ferdinand building and former Area B-2 Police Station site.
The project will consider a range of improvements for traffic, parking, buses, pedestrians, bicycles, accessibility, and the overall safety and aesthetics of the streets and sidewalks. Special emphasis will be given to developing plans that improve the multimodal environment of Dudley Square and build upon previous planning initiatives. The geographic limits of work are generally bounded by Dudley Street between Shawmut Avenue and Harrison Avenue, Washington Street between Shawmut Extension and Melnea Cass and Warren Street between Kearsage and Washington Street.
BTD is partnering with the Roxbury community to develop 100% plans and bid documents by the Fall of 2013 with construction anticipated to begin in the first quarter of 2014. A design budget of $600,000 has been allocated along with construction funding of approximately $9 million.
